The final episode of Number 1s (for a while, at least)! Ryan Sartor returns to help tackle the extra meaty lineup of READY PLAYER ONE (3:35), the XXXTentacion album ? (22:43) and the Stormy Daniels episode of 60 MINUTES (40:27). We also get into a broad and kind of bleak discussion about modern communication. Thanks to everyone for listening, and good luck engaging with pop culture without me telling you what to think about it!
